Before Michael Jordan set up shop at the United Center, his Chicago Bulls put together their first three-peat at the old Chicago Stadium. The arena closed its doors while Jordan was retired in 1994 and was demolished a year later.
But the memories from the storied arena remain. Recently, a former Bulls ticket office employee handed over a pair of Michael Jordan game-worn “Bugs Bunny” Air Jordan 8s, which he says were worn by His Airness in his last regular season game at Chicago Stadium. According to Huggins & Scott, the auction’s host, the shoes have been photo matched for authenticity.
Jordan went on to play 9 additional games at Chicago Stadium during the playoffs en route to his third championship.
